Star Cruises- SuperStar Virgo!

And so, my first vacation of the year is over. 
I remember the last time I went on Star Cruises was when I was in Primary school so that was eons away now! So when I was given the opportunity to go on board, with my girlfriends, I jumped onto it immediately! :D

my qoo luggage from Mabs! :D 

On Sunday, parents drove me to Harbourfront, Singapore Cruise Centre, where I met up with the girls and there, our first vacation together began.

We were given a tour after we left our luggage in the room. We have gotten a balcony so it's pretty awesome cause the view and breeze was always great! (;

Here's the Parthenon Pool which comes with a super super fun spiry slide and jacuzzi! We were all so psyched about the place after we saw the very greek deco!

After the tour, our first meal of the trip was at Bella Vista, where International Cuisine is being served! (:

13 September 2011

Pris and I woke up around 6 A.M. and we went for a morning walk! We caught the very pretty sun rise! Apparently when we went up to the deck, there were already many early birds doing their morning jogs and exercises! It's always good to start the day early cause there's so much to do- relaxingly! Teehee (:

IMG_1147

We went back to catch some sleep after a few drinks cause the next day was another land trip! Redang this time. I remember by this time, I was feeling a little sad cause Redang means my vacation is coming to it's end! ):



♥ Day 5! 
15 September 2011

IMG_1201

Our cruise pulled into waters of Redang and we boarded another boat which brought us to Redang! (: 
Again, there was snorkeling, diving and Scuba for us to pick and cause Scuba appealed most to us, we picked that activity! (: (: 

IMG_1206
signing off some papers before we went on our activity!

IMG_1226
beautiful, isnt it? (:
looking like a wallpaper!


Had on the suit and oxygen tank (boy! it was freaking heavy!!!) and we hit the waters! Cause we were all beginners, it was 2 persons to 1 instructor. So very safe for those who haven't tried! We have had a photographer capture our experience underwater so another post on Redang, I promise!!! (:

We went back to our cruise after lunch on Redang and since we were already wet and messy, we decided to give Aquaswim a try! :D

♥ Day 6! 
16 September 2011

Slept rather late on the last night so we didn't manage to wake up in time for breakfast lolol!

IMG_1344

IMG_1347

Our cruise pulled into Harbourfront at 1 P.M. and there. The end of our 6D5N vacation! So It was a 6 Days 5 Nights trip which included land visit to Ho Chi Minh City and Redang. We spent most of the days on board and there was really so many activities to go for! And i've covered most of them! :D You name it, SuperStar Virgo got it! There's also so many food variation from Chinese cuisine to Indian to Japanese, Western and Italian!

If you want a good getaway with that special person or BFF, I highly recommend Star Cruises. Cause there wasn't much access to network and internet and i survived 6 Days without my phone. My girls and I practically left our mobiles in our room for all days! It was really relaxing to just sit by the balcony and berth, feeling the breeze on our skin.

Every deck onboard SuperStar Virgo teems with endless fun, entertainment and activities. As you cruise to the most exotic parts of Asia on this floating five-star resort, its more than 25 outlets of food and beverage, entertainment and recreation outlets will impress you! There's even a cinema, The Picture House, and arcade, childcare centre! You may want to see the list of  wine and dine, entertainment on board here!

Last but not least, I want to thank the wonderful guest relation team who made this whole trip smooth! (:
They are constantly making sure everything runs well for us, making breakfast/lunch/dinner reservations for us!  And also some activities coordination!
